Service 9th May, St Johns Church, Mona Vale.
"A life lived abundantly, creatively, lovingly. An acclaimed artist and
sculptor. A true friend. Funny, very clever, great mind, mischievous,
honourable and a great story teller."
- Robyn Berkeley
Sculptor Michael Kitching was born in 1940 in Hull, England, UK, moving
to Australia in 1952. Growing up in England, he often visited galleries
and museums with his father, James Digby Percival Kitching, a military
trained engineer and builder who was responsible for building two major
oil refineries in the UK during WW11. It was through his father’s
creative influence that Kitching’s love of art was founded, teaching him
also how to work, construct and create with his hands. Representation by: Berkeley Editions Fine Art, 2017 Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize - Finalist: Mike's sculpture "Multiple 1"
